Leaving Stage IV

Posted By on March 29, 2012


Just because something can be done, doesn’t mean it should be.

When Tianne Cantamessa is diagnosed with a lethal form of malignant brain tumor she opts out of treatment, choosing instead to accept what fate has thrown her. But her two daughters and family don’t see things quite the way she does. And her ex-husband will do anything in his power to not have to be a father, even if it means suing Tianne to force cancer treatment.

Tianne now has to deal with the stages of grief while trying to make those she loves understand her decision to die. And because life is never a tidy thing, she must come to terms with a new love that is not meant to be, an ex-husband who is hiding behind his fears and his pregnant new wife that shows up at Tianne’s house for an extended visit.

Leaving Stage IV is a mainstream women’s novel of approximately 95,000 words that incorporates a lighter view of how we regard life, death and family.
